Petition to ban assault weapons

Messages Sent So Far
A tragedy of great proportions happened today, Dec 14, 2012, which broke our hearts. 20 children and 6 adults died in a mass shooting in an Elementary School in Newtown, CT. In the recent past there were mass shootings in a mall in Oregon, in a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and a theater in Aurora. Easy access to assault weapons makes such mass killings possible.

Assault weapons doesn't belong in our streets and neighborhoods. The 2nd Amendment gives us the right to bear arms, but it doesn't define arms. Were do we draw the line? If we don't draw a line, can a Howitzer be considered a gun that a private citizen can own? We need to pass a law that bans weapons that belong in the military from being owned by private citizens.

This is a petition to pass a law banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines.

My friends could've gotten killed in the recent shooting in Columbus, Ohio. You got an answer for that?
